Recently I've been having to use alt + sysrq + f a lot. Software is getting too heavy.
Does alt + sysrq + k work for anyone? For me, it just freezes the screen, and I can't see or do shit until I press the power button and see all the usual system messages.
5 guest@cc 2020-08-14T02:44:07
I didn't even know sysrq was a key. On my machine alt + sysrq + f doesn't seem to do anything, and alt + sysrq + k sends me to the tty I'm logged in but I can't switch to another tty or return back to my xsession from there

Some of the options are off by default (on some distros?) for some reason.

It's short for "System Request", it's a way of directly telling the kernel to do something in case shit locks up, or if you forgot to install an operating system.

Good luck operator.

I hate Gitlab's reliance on JS so much.
Maybe it is misremembering, but I believe that Github has also lost some no-JS-needed function since the design ""refresh"" a few months ago.

>>10 Yeah, I think you can't really see commits without it anymore, and they tucked "Releases" into a super hard to find spot for some reason.

I have no idea what in particular it is, but the entire UI of gitlab gives me terminal computerAIDS. It's either because of how "minimal" it is or the colorscheme or something, but it's overall extremely unappealing to me.

I don't get how any site without strong multimedia elements is reliant on Javascript. Most everything the average website needs (including the tracking cookies everyone hates) can be done far easier with plain HTML and CSS.

I think it's honestly it's just the way it's laid out. Even if it had a completely different aesthetic, looking at it would still be anxiety inducing because everything's put in the wrong spot.

Gentoo's Xorg guide should have a little note saying "ignore this crap about installing consolekit or elogind or whatever harmful garbage and just set the ""suid"" flag".

SysRq is usually the "PS" or "PrtScn" key over by the scroll lock key on your keyboard. I'm certain you've figured that out by now. This reply is redundant.

I give up trying to wrangle with ALSA. Why is the sound from my headphones clear and loud when the master volume is 0%? What the fuck are all these weird items in alsamixer? Why do I have to do a balancing act with "Master', "Headphones", and "PCM" when I want some quiet fucking audio? Why did .asoundrc stop loading? Poetterware it is then.
guest@cc 2021-01-04T14:09:39
When I observe alsamixer while changing volume levels in pavucontrol, "PCM", "Headphones", and "Master" literally take turns increasing in volume, one after another, after the previous one hits 100%. What the hell is this?
24 guest@cc 2021-01-06T02:08:49
that's because it didn't look shocking in the 80es, very often the backtick ` looked exactly like a reverse '. People kept at it for convention or because they're VIP.

>>30 You mean >>27? I think I stole a photo of a forest from google images, maybe a grayscale one in particular, I don't really remember. Then I went into an image editor, GIMP specifically, and had it figure out how it could convert the image to just black and white, by going through the top menu and clicking Image > Mode > Indexed, and through the next menu that pops up, selecting "Use black and white (1-bit) palette".
I'm guessing that it helps to use images that have a fair bit of contrast already, or just lit and unlit areas.

GIMP's convenient control over image "mode" control and bit depth is a little unique among most image editors, which don't seem to like giving users that level of technical control. It allows you to create artistic palette restraints, while greatly reducing the filesize.
If you use it to convert an image that's already been made at a high bit depth, it does a pretty great job at conveying the same information without you putting any work in, creating this cool looking filter. It's probably just really simple maths, but it amazes me every time.

Oh, forgot to mention, I left dithering disabled as well. It just seemed like an annoying, impossible to reverse scaling process. Well it's impossible to reverse completely taking the colour out of an image as well, but I like to minimise the number of things I do at once when it comes to this stuff.

I had to stop using DuckDuckGo because
- the Japanese search suggestions were always incredibly pedophilic, despite some basic attempt to filter out obscenity
- the noscript DuckDuckGo gives entirely different, way lower quality results, listing the same unrelated results (manga, always the same titles and websites; or the index pages of porn, dlsite, and booth) for different search queries
